Silky Stuff and Bobbins Make Me CRAZY!!!

Well… SNOT! This silky fabric is making me a crazy person. I have ripped out the hem on the flounce 3 times!!! I replaced the whole flounce once already… SIGH… I think most of this is due to my bobbin thread going nuts. I have cleaned the little compartment out and changed bobbins but it’s still making the bottom stitches too loose. Anyone have any advice???

Here is what I have so far on the McCall’s 6467



SIGH… I have ironed and ironed and ironed and still can’t get the dang wrinkles out. :/


I think I am just going to cover the flounce hem with some lace hem tape and be done with it before I cause it bodily harm.

I am going to have to make a shell to go under it. It is SOOO thin! Luckily I still have enough of the fabric left (I think….).

SIGH…. Maybe it will look better once I get it all done….. You think???


On a GOOD note The Hubby bought me Wicked Business (Lizzy and Diesel, Bk 2) by Janet Evanovich today!!! WOOO HOOO!!!! Gotta love Carl the Monkey! 😉 I can’t wait to read it!
